Charlotte - significant name!
« on: February 08, 2008, 01:01:15 AM »
Charlotte Staples Lewis - or CS Lewis.....quite an obvious clue / easter egg.......the author of the fantasy series Chronicles Of Narnia.

The Narnia series is about parallel worlds with human children being magically pulled into a fantasy world. In Lost there have been many theories put forward surrounding parallel universes, our survivors being in purgatory etc etc.....

But I like the parallel with Narnia. It seems that some such as Ben can move between both worlds quite easily...hence the photograph...

What do you all think?

I assumed it was just another in a long line of allusions to novels involving alternate worlds (i.e. Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, etc.)

Someone recently posted on here about "The Wood Between the Worlds" from The Magician's Nephew.  (When I remember who it was, I'll edit this post!)

The Island may have that sort of ability.  The Orchid film really ties into this discussion, as well.

I was going to mention the other Charlotte too - at first I though they were the same actress.  They certainly look similar (but are not the same one).

And am I off, or did CSL sound more like she had a New Zealand or South african accent than English, at leat at first?  (Though Rebecca Mader, the actress, actually is from Cambridge, so maybe I was just preoccupied with all the weirdness.)

Sounded English to me.  Like straight out of a Jane Austen novel.  Although, she did remind me a little of Nicole Kidman too...

Could be, although they are played by different actresses.

Charlotte Malkin - Brooke Anderson

Charlotte Lewis - Rebecca Mader

they would have been played by different actresses because charlotte malkin was much younger, and the new charlotte is an adult.  what i'm wondering is the time frame difference in the two.

okay, i've gone back and looked.  i forgot that she approached eko at the airport.  so it IS a different actress.  but do you think they could have gotten a different actress to play the same character?  they do look a lot a like.

That'd be my guess too, although it'd be interesting if she shared some of Lewis's philosophy.

Unless there really are different time speeds going on, and that seems extremely unlikely given that Charlie talked to Penny in real time, Charlotte Malkin is way too young to be Charlotte Lewis, never mind her mother....
